I love hosting brunch because it’s a meal where you can make sweet and savory items and basically anything goes.  Whenever I host brunch I try to make some type of egg dish, some type of fruit dish, a sweet item, and a bread.  One of my favorite things to make are donuts.

I’m not talking about deep fried donuts.   Those donuts are messy, high in fat and calories, and they just aren’t that good.  I’m talking about baked donuts.  I have a donut pan that makes baking up a batch of donuts a snap!   Plus there are so many fun flavors you can make and you can match the flavors to the season.

Funfetti Donuts will be a brunch time favorite!

Today I’m sharing a recipe for Funfetti Donuts.  These are great to serve at a brunch where there are a lot of kids because they love the bright colors and the flavor.  These would also be great for a birthday brunch because who doesn’t like sprinkles?

Bake up a batch of Funfetti Donuts

The dough for the donuts is simple to make.  While I’d normally use vanilla in this recipe I’ve recently found LorAnn Butter Vanilla Bakery Emulsion and I’ve been using it in everything!   I can’t get enough of it.

It's easy and fun to make colorful Baked Funfetti Donuts!

The donuts were butter vanilla flavored with sprinkles and came out perfectly.  Then I made a quick glaze for the top and dipped the donuts in more sprinkles!   These are such a fun and tasty brunch item that both kids and adults will love.
